Grilled Wild Salmon with Fresh Herb Chimichurri

Salmon re-defined



  • 2-lb wild salmon fillet

Chimichurri sauce:

  • 2 cups parsley
  • 3 tbsp fresh oregano (or 1 tbsp dried) 
  • 1 tbsp smoked paprika
  • 1 bunch green onions, or 5 shallots, or a mix
  • 1⁄2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • Fresh black pepper 




Heat oven to 425°f. Finely chop parsley and oregano (if fresh), along with shallots or green onions. Combine all chimichurri ingredients in a medium bowl. 

Place salmon fillets on a parchment-lined baking pan and place in oven for 15 to 20 minutes, or until oils in the salmon are rising to the top and turning white. (e fillet should feel tender to the touch when pressed with finger. If it is too firm it is overcooked. 

Transfer salmon to serving platter and spoon chimichurri generously onto fish. Can be served warm immediately, and it’s also delicious at room temperature the next day. 


et voila!
